Another Case Where BRI=Ordinary Meaning


In Cisco Systems, Inc. v. AIP Acquisition LLC, IPR2014-00247, Paper 20 (July 10, 2014), the Board previously held that if U.S. Patent No. 7,724,879 expires before the final written decision, the claims would be given their ordinary meaning rather than their broadest reasonable interpretation.  In Paper 20 the Board decided that coincidentally, the ordinary meaning and the broadest reasonable interpretation for the disputed terms were the same.
